I need welding for sliders...

I have some sliders that are arriving within a day or two and am going to need them welded. I work around downtown Denver and was looking for nearby autobody or whatever type of place that could do the welding. I live in Wheat Ridge. Can anyone suggest a convenient place to get this done? Or if someone want to make a few bucks, I would be up for that also. I'll do the necessary grinding prior to make it a bit less time consuming and can also bring some beers. Let me know what price your thinking. This is my first real mod and I feel like I'm breaking out of the stock world into a whole new place.

By the way, I did have a brief job welding but it was so long ago, I'd have a hard time setting up a welder to the right settings, so I can do it myself if needed, but I don't have a welder. HELP?

The world is not as strange as you think, but stranger than you can think.

I can do it as well, but this weekend is no good for me. I'm a welding student, so I don't mind some more practice. Don't let that scare you though. I have been welding every single day for the past 5 months...

FYI, if I do it, it will be arc welded, not MIGed. Not that it really matters, but some people have their preferences...

1980 Toyota Pickup: CB antenna, custom 2-tone paint, duct tape mod, weight reduction, 29" meats. sway bar and torque bar removed for MAD FLEX.

I have a 110v mig as well and can weld them on for you. I would offer to do it in my shop, where I have a couple of big migs, but the whole shop is taken up with a big project right now.

I am overwhelmed with the offers! I am planning on going up to the HOW shop on Sunday and looking forward to meeting some new people. As for cleaning, I can push a broom, but as for organizing, I will leave that to the owners. It is so nice knowing that strangers will offer this kind of help.
